The accommodation was outstanding as far as motel facilities go. We stayed in a cabin & everything was immaculate and fresh. All the staff we came into contact with were very friendly and seemed to genuinely care about our needs. There is a bistro and bar attached which were both stunning inside & the food was great. The food in the bistro seems overpriced at first but was worth every cent. Same with the accom, it seems overpriced (and probably is because it's a mining town) but the services and facilities are fantastic. The only poor points were 1) No accommodation is reserved for travelers during the week - we would have stayed longer if we had been able to but its fully booked as mining accom for months in advance; 2) The pool was dirty (but it's a dusty town...); 3) The street appeal is non-existent and it's difficult to work out how to enter the property unless you're familiar with the hotel already. If you can manage to get a room then I'd definitely recommend this hotel/motel. I was traveling with my 5 year old son to visit my husband who is based at Blackwater mine and was surprised by the facilities for kids - a pool, playground, kids area/playstation area in the bistro, plus all the staff treated him so well.
